Sitting outside his house in Rogla village in Sangrur, Maghar Ram was barely able to fight back tears. His son Soni Ram (24), a small farmer, was among the seven killed in the Manikaran tragedy on Tuesday. Seven pilgrims died and nine others were injured, two of them seriously, after a giant boulder rolled down a mountain and hit a multi-storey building of a popular Sikh shrine at Manikaran in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu district Tuesday. Soni had got married just six months ago.
